Kurt Fuller is best known for his work in the films Wayne's World (1992) with Mike Myers and Anger Management (2003) with Jack Nicholson and Adam Sandler, although others may know him best as the wacky sheriff who likes to pose in Speedos in Scary Movie (2000).Born in San Francisco and raised in the agricultural heartland of California's San Joaquin Valley, Fuller became passionate about acting while attending UC Berkley, where he received a degree in English literature. After graduating, he made the move to Los Angeles with everything he owned stuffed into the back of a Dodge Dart (including a king-sized foam rubber mattress). For the next ten years, he was a Realtor by day and a stage actor by night. Then, in 1986, he created the leading role of "Frank" in Steven Berkoff's explosively successful "Kvetch", earning rave reviews on both coasts.Fuller has worked with Hollywood's best directors, including Paul Schrader, Ridley Scott, Wim Wenders, Taylor Hackford, Mike Newell, Harold Ramis, Brian De Palma and Ivan Reitman. His numerous film credits include "Auto Focus," "Ray," "Pushing Tin," The Jack Bull" and "Ghostbusters 2."He has been a regular on numerous series, including "Big Day" (2006) for ABC and "That's My Bush!" (2001) from "South Park" (1997) creators Trey Parker and Matt Stone, and has recurred and guest starred on over a hundred other TV shows and telefilms, including recent arcs on ABC's "Desperate Housewives" (2004), "Boston Legal" (2004) and "Alias" (2001). Other TV appearances include HBO's Live from Baghdad (2002) (TV) with Michael Keaton and the series "Unscripted" (2005) and "Carnivale". On the other networks, he was seen recently on "CSI: Crime Scene Investigation" (2000), "The 4400" (2004), "House M.D." (2004), "The West Wing" (1999), "Monk" (2002), "Las Vegas" (2003) and "Malcolm in the Middle" (2000).Fuller still returns to the stage occasionally. His most recent theater work was "The Cosmonaut's Last Message" at the La Jolla Playhouse, and the highly acclaimed "The Waiting Room" at the The Mark Taper Forum.Fuller has been married to Jessica Hendra, a recently published author, since 1994. They have two children, Julia and Charlotte.
